      Ok Mo, where are the women o? They are really the ones that suffer the stigma of divorce in Nigeria. Men just get up and go

        Really? really? Are you naive enough to think only women suffer “real” pain from divorce? You think the only kind of pain is public pain and suffering? I try to be civilized on the internet, but really? You think only women suffer from the feeling of failure, despair, disillusionment and all divorce brings? really?

        It is a myth that only women suffer in patriachal societies. It is not only women who are boxed into roles. Men are just as boxed in, and suffer too, even if to a lesser degree publicly. But all suffering is suffering.

        You think a man whose marriage broke down is given respect among peers when a society expects a man to “keep his wife in check?”

        You don’t make a better society by elevating one sex’s emotions or suffering or whatever above the other. that is what was done in the past. look where it got us. women suffer from divorce. MEN suffer too. Women may suffer more in the public eye….whatever. Women and men suffer. GET OVER IT!

      Women are more affected in most cases……

      ok sorry for the double, tripple postings. but still. Really?

      • Nneka November 15, 2010 at 5:33 PM

        Really Lady Jaye. Women generally suffer more.
        Hmm…maybe not “really” cos men are just more likely to cover up their emotions, hurt or otherwise.
        On another note… this comment section is really ‘really-ed’ up.
        Really.

        • Lady Jaye November 15, 2010 at 6:59 PM

          what i am saying is that implying that women suffer “more” and so have more legitimacy when talking about the pain of divorce is horrible. there is no quantifying of human suffering! Yes, really.

        • LADY E!!!! November 17, 2010 at 11:49 PM

          My Ex is taking it really really real bad!!!!

    • lowlah November 15, 2010 at 6:36 PM

      anyone can suffer divorce…it is not only women…. y do we women love to play the victim…can something not b our fault as well…… yes some women get it ruff but so do some men to…

    • myne Whitman November 15, 2010 at 10:26 PM

      Maybe there was a woman guest but she’s not shown? Or no doivorced woman agreed to be on the show.

    • ini November 15, 2010 at 11:50 PM

      alrite guys,easy.both sexes suffer in their own way so its not fair to say a particular sex suffers less or more.however,the children who r affected by divorce become dysfunctional.its manifesting in several ways in our soceity.i think they bear the brunt of their parents dilema.its very sad cos then they grow up not believing in the union of marriage….wat can b done?

      • shade November 16, 2010 at 4:20 AM

        Emm sorry to burst your bubble. My parents are divorced, specifically my dad has been divorced twice and I’m not “dysfunctional” and i do believe in the union of marriage. But it’s not a do or die affair. Let’s keep the generalization to a tee…

        • Gorgeous November 16, 2010 at 4:17 PM

          “its not a do or die affair”—you just justified her generalization. She means people from divorced homes are more likely to not take the union as seriously as those from two-parent homes.

    • Faith November 16, 2010 at 8:20 AM

      I don’t think it matters if your parents are divorced or not. If you are not in a family that expresses love, you are bound to be slightly dysfunctional. A legal status doesn’t change that. If divorced parents raise their children with love and harmony they would probably be better off than those that remain in loveless marriages that fight all the time.

        Thank you o.

      • partyrider November 23, 2010 at 3:41 PM

        thank you..i have lived without my dad all my life,its bin just me , my mum an elder brother..only cos of fbk i knw how his face looks like,and now dat we talk once in a red moon.but mum is unbelievably strong and the love she has shown and love from cousins and frnds bridges the gap..i have no idea wat it means having a mum and dad under one roof,but i knw wat it means to be loved to death,sumtin unfortunately children who have both parents 2geda dont have.and i believe in love,and blissful marriage.i have my cousin and her husband as a testimony

    • gezy November 17, 2010 at 11:10 PM

      totally agree with Shade and Faith. i am 30 yrs old and already divorced after 9 yrs of marriage. strangely enough, i dont feel bad, sad or feel like i owe anything to the society. my reasons to be are justified. i was in a horrible situation and yes, maybe i could have managed it like most African women but i guess i was not matured enough. spending my life being miserable cant be the best way to raise my 9 yrs old child.

    • DUDU November 18, 2010 at 9:32 AM

      I hope Mo spoke about this too o! Cos she keeps talking about everyone else’s issues and nips hers in the bud. It would be great to hear her own story at least once

    • Ennie July 11, 2011 at 9:39 PM

      I think,people think women are é most affected, why?because women show depression in public whilst man drink their depression out.both parties suffer
